    The guy that builds them is Derry and his number used to be 707.226.1556. I haven't talked to him for a long time. Hope the number is still good.

    USA country code is 1. So it would be 0117072261556. Is that what you mean?

    Hi Gary,

    We brought a earlier model data logger from him years ago, before the datastar was released,

    Details are

    Derry O'Donovan

    Pro Sport engineering Inc,

    Address 1090 La Londe lane, Napa, Ca 94558, america.

    He is based up in the Napa Wine valley just north of San Francisco

    Phone number is 707 - 226 - 1556.

    I tried finding an email address for him as i know i have one but, just cant find it at the moment, I keep looking cause its easrier for you when we live overseas.

    He used to also make Steel bellhousings before selling out to "Bowell bellhousings" a few years ago.

    Have not been in contact with him for several years.

    Regards Greg Price

    Hi Gary,
    I found an email address for you, that i used about 6 years ago and have no reason why it would not still be current so drop Derry a email at it.

    DerryOD@aol.com



    Regards Greg.
